I am pleased to offer an intimate size silver gelatin print of my image, Aspens at Dusk, Near Aspen, Colorado at an affordable price.
This 5x7" handcrafted silver gelatin image is being offered at the reduced price of $300 - a significant savings from the gallery retail price of my prints. Unlike my other prints, this 5x7" print - printed by me on 11x14" silver gelatin photographic paper - will be delivered UNmounted, and without an overmat.
The print will be made to the same exacting standards as all of my other prints, and will be selenium toned and archivally processed. It will be signed and dated by me, and will include a tastefully designed and photographically printed title at the bottom of the 11x14" paper, along with a discrete embossed stamp denoting this is a silver gelatin print by John Sexton in the lower right corner.
As many readers are aware, I LOVE photographing aspen trees. I am fascinated by the way their trunks reflect light and in certain situations seem to have a magical luminous quality. This image appears as Plate 24 in my book Listen to the Trees. I made this image just moments after the making of the book's, frontispiece. Even though the two images were made only a few feet apart, using the exact same lens on my 4x5 Linhof view camera, and are both equally sharp, I have always printed this photograph small. To me the intimacy of this image invites close inspection and communication, and for me a small print size encourages the viewer to come close to listen to the print as it whispers its message.
The prints will be carefully prepared and packaged in rugged protective envelopes, and shipped fully insured.
Normally there is a long waiting period for John's original prints. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a print with a short waiting period, and at a very reasonable price.
